My first gubbing this week. 888casino. Not surprised though as I would normally deposit then play the free spins and then withdraw. Did that 3 times. Made a profit all 3 times.Twice I won over £120.

Their casino offers are so easy too! Risk free 😄

Yeh, wish the other casinos I've used so far were that easy. I was gutted when I got the email!

I wouldn't worry too much, they get everyone in the end. It's a sort of smash and grab mission with their casino 🙂

Lost Coral today. No more bet club for me. 😭
That said, it was always a chore to do, haha!! It's funny because this week is pretty much the first time I haven't participated and I never got the in shop bet as there's no shop near me! Oh well......

Paddypower gubbed me few days ago. only did the signup sports offer 3 or 4 weeks ago. Havent taken advantage of any casino offers at all so not sure why the gubbed me!

The email only mentions the casino offers so hopefully I can still take advantage of the sports offers!

What is the most common reason for being gubbed ? for example like doing arb ( but why many arbs between betfair sportbook and betfair exchange ),  using free bet with high odd over 10, placing bet through others websites ( even the link is hidden they know we used a referral ), register for welcome offer through referral ( maybe the referral has been gubbed or is in red list ), using too many free offers, bet stake high. too many logging, too many withdrawals,...etc.....,  I have no idea as I am new and trying to understand.

2 others questions :

1- rating higher than 100 between 2 exchanges is that considered as Arb ? I thought I read exchange does not gub 

2- In play, many odds discrepancy between exchanges and bookmakers, will this be considered as Arb at it will move so quick during the match ( maybe more for tennis than foot )

1 - Exchanged don't gub so you're fine doing matches between 2 exchanges. There has been hear say that they'll remove you from 0% commission promos but it's a load of rubbish

2 - Inplay I personally think you're ok arbing on sports that are volatile. This comes with risk though as odds move very quickly, and also im not 100% sure. Also, if a football game was at half time then it's technically inplay but if you did a massive arb they'd be able to monitor it.

 

And the first question: the most common reason is for taking too much value. Arbs, free bets, promotions etc. They're not stupid and they can see. You just have to mix it up a bit 🙂

I had a silly case with one bookmaker, I did the welcome offer, my bet loose then I got the  £20 refund. After that I used this refund as free bet which is still open and just got an email that following a review of my account I will not be eligible to receive ANY promotions. Can a bookmaker cancel the ongoing free bet not settled yet ? If I win, can they block me to withdraw ?

It is my first gub and I was just doing the welcome offer process, that is so fast !! Is that because I chose odd high to lose the TR bet and get the refund ? or I choose odd too high for free bet ?
